Your Work Is Priestly Work | #932

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

Corpus Christi – The one Priesthood of Jesus Christ continues in the royal priesthood of all the Baptized. God so wants you to be holy that he then calls men offer bread and wine and nourish the faithful with the Body and Blood of Christ.

Glowing With God’s Glory (#735, Transfiguration)

Fr. Joel Homilies

The glory of God is hidden in the flesh and blood of Jesus, and within the bread and wine at Mass. If you listen to God, you will become who you were made to be and do what you were made to do: You too will shine with the glory of God. [AUDIO]

Want to Have it All? Then Give Yourself Away (#731, 13th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Yesterday 5 men laid down their lives and were ordained priests. Getting stuff and holding on to it doesn’t really make us happy. Jesus teaches us that you are a gift that was made to be given away. Our King is not outdone in generosity. [AUDIO]

Before Eating Ask Yourself This Question (#720, Holy Thursday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Though none of us is worthy we all share in the priesthood of Jesus Christ. Christ’s presence in the Eucharist and in charity is an invitation. Before you take from His table ask yourself: am I prepared to return the gift? [AUDIO]

Nine Years of Priesthood: Serving as Jesus Served (#634, 13th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Jesus tells his future priests that they must put Him first. Priesthood is about listening to God and teaching others to listen to Him. He who gives of himself receives Jesus in return. And Jesus is worth more than what was left behind. (26 Jun 2016)
